it was put in place. we just raise tax rates on the well-off so we are doing this in pieces off. declaring victory more angry at each other than they were before and making it harder to do the remaining policies is so we know what we have left we know what we have to the health care cost which the truth is we don't know how to fix the system in its entirety. we have to keep looking at ways to control health care cost and the government programs and medicare and we are going to have to go back and do this every couple of years but we have to study what works and put more of the policies that are working in place. we have to deal with our other entitlement. it's a contentious issue in this country. it's always a political tough battle. but the longer we wait to make the changes for the people the difference of the programs there is no question about that and we have to go forward with tax reform which is great when you talk about it broadly we all know the tax code is a disaster and none of us like the tax code. when you talk about the ability to broaden the base, lower the rate and raise re

about now closing more loopholes and that means higher taxes. we don't know on who, but he would not specify any specific spending reductions and refusing to negotiate with the house republicans on the issue of the debt ceiling. lou, an interesting couple of months. looking forward to it. >> megyn: all right. thank you, sir. >> thanks, megyn. >> megyn: with the president refuse to go negotiate on that debt ceiling, it's coming and we're going to hit it and there's going to be a real question what we will do. he negotiated the last time and suddenly says he doesn't want to negotiate anymore and the republicans have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to these spending cuts, saying, if we don't see a dollar for dollar spending cut in the amount you want to raise the debt ceiling, there's no deal. what kind of progress can we hope for here? our political panel debates that coming up in our next hour. now to another big debate playing out in washington over the obama administration's efforts to overhaul the nation's gun laws. we heard some of that this morning. here is the preside

, and raised taxes more than once. and reagan was in favor of a ban on assault weapons just like president obama. >> right, and that comment was a way of saying that these are very centrist reforms, really common sense things that most americans agree with. he emphasized that in a few ways and a few times during that time. and i think the framing you're talking about, too, is really important. it is not just guns they're looking at. they're looking at mental health and research, links between violent media. you know, they are looking at more armed school resource officers at schools and providing funding for that. but i think constantly framing it, these are things that just make sense that the majority of americans support. and how can the republicans be so intransigent, not be even willing to discuss or consider any of these measures. >> richard, a month ago we heard the pundits say hand it off to joe biden and you will be involved in a senate committee process and lose all the momentum. well, this president/joe biden team, in the meantime, solved the fiscal cliff situation. joe biden re

and actually to get from where we are, given the spending cuts and tax increases that we've implemented so far, to where we need to be to stabilize the debt, is not that heavy a lift if we had a functional politics that was actually paying attention to what needs to be done instead of creating these ridiculous self-inflicted skirmishes and wounds. as you have correctly pointed out, you have even got conservatives spokespeople saying, look, this isn't going to happen, you're not going to do this. we're going to have one of these last minute solutions again. if that is truly the case and if history is precedent, it will be, we really have to ask ourselves about our priorities. >> and yet, david, the problem is the fitch ratings agency has already threatened a ratings downgrade. and it even has a retort who think debt ceiling hostage taking can be a weapon against spending calling it an infective and potentially dangerous mechanism for enforcing fiscal discipline. so what is this obsession they have of falling on their sword and taking the country with them. >> there you go again, martin, stickin

're going to sell it to me, you have to go through all kinds of registration, pay taxes, do all of other things. we transferred one of our cars to one of our sons here recently. we had to go through the motor vehicle department transfer, whatever. why somebody should be able to go into a gun show and buy any kind of a thing, on any kind of the background check you might have otherwise, at least -- i can't understand that. i really can't. i think we should have stricter background checks. i think they should be real ones. if you have the restraining orders on you, other things, we ought to be able to do that. i realize every state's different. vermont has virtually no gun laws. you can carry loaded concealed weapon in vermont this afternoon if you were there with no permit. we also have one of the lowest crime rates in the country but not because of that. we are as a society we are very law-abiding, but would that stop somebody who is mentally unhinged from going out and using a gun, knife, or anything else to kill people? no. the president's right when he says there are a whole lot -- i'

guards at their school. mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> bill: now unless i didn't hear it correctly, there were three times there where he's talking about the president's kids. >> sure. as anyone who follows politics knows, that is an area that's really considered off-limits when you're talking about children of the president. so whether to make a point -- i understand this is a debate about children but i think most of the observers looking at david keen said this is not about the children. it is about the arguments that -- >> bill: he would only say that if he were getting a lot of flack because of it. he must be getting some flack even from nra supporters who said drop that ad. enough is enough. >> it is important to bear in mind it is a web-only ad. it was more put throughout to stir this kind of debate about the gun issue rather than actually focusing in on the president's proposal. >> bill: let's get to the political

. i think taxing bullets and the high-capacity magazines makes sense. we need to set our priorities. we do not have the right to own rocket launchers and hand grenades. this is the case where we need to have lost to present ourselves -- 3 prevent ourselves from our own recklessness. >> thank you. what is wrong with our judicial system that it is broken. if no one can see that the need to open your eyes a little wider. people are not responsible. we all understand something has to be wrong these people to shoot 20 innocent children. we understand that is a mental health issue. law-abiding citizens are not the problem. we have too many laws. no one understands them. stop doing some of this stuff that people can say i had a rough childhood. let's put them in places where nothing happens to them. if you enforce the laws that are currently in place, maybe some of these people will think twice before they take a gun to another human being. if they cannot respect human life, there is a real problem. those are some of the issues. those need to be taken care of. officers have to go out and w
